                                              40. What is the policy of the department of carry over recreation leave, in particular, how many weeks are allowed to be carried over between years?
                                              There is no maximum amount of leave employees can carry over. DBE reports on employees that have not taken recreation leave for 12 months and an appropriate break is negotiated.

                                              57. What areas of the department are self-insured? What areas are commercially insured? If there are areas that are commercially insured, who provides this insurance, when is it due for renewal and what is the cost of this insurance provision and does it attract any thresholds under which insurance is not provided or any payments on item replacement?
                                              DBE line agency is self insured and does not take out commercial insurance. The GBDs (GPO, NT Fleet and DCS) take out commercial insurance where appropriate. Refer to above.

                                              58. How many tonnes of CO2 did the department emit in 2009?
                                              The Northern Territory Government has committed to become carbon neutral by 2018 under the Northern Territory Climate Change Policy. Under this target, whole of government systems to account for greenhouse gas emissions according to recognised international greenhouse accounting standards will be progressively rolled out over the next eight years for Government processes.
                                              Currently, the Northern Territory Government reports against building energy consumption use by Government agencies with more than 50 full time equivalent staff members, and for vehicle emissions from NT Fleet vehicles.
                                              Emissions from NT Fleet vehicles for 9 months of this period was:

                                                NT Fleet: 14.4

                                              59. How many tonnes of CO2 did the department emit in 2008?
                                              In 2007-08 DBE preliminary building energy consumption was 23939 giga joules corresponding to 5002 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
                                              In 2008-09 DBE preliminary building energy consumption was 23282 giga joules corresponding to 5122 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.

                                              Greenhouse emissions are calculated on the formula provided by the Commonwealth and includes an emissions co-efficient. In the 2008-09 year, the production of electricity was less carbon efficient.

                                              Emissions from NT Fleet vehicles for 9 months of this period was:

                                              DBE has initiated a number of strategies to reduce its carbon emissions during 2008-09 including:
                                              o The following initiatives are encouraged across all departmental buildings and locations:
                                              • defaulting department computers to double-sided and black and white printing
                                              • paper recycling bins installed across business units
                                              • toner and ink cartridge recycling bins in place throughout the department
                                              • utilising intranet and internet to publish large documents
                                              • changing behaviours to switch off lights and computers when not in use

                                              • encouraging all staff to switch off all electrical equipment when not in use
                                              • building lights and air-conditioning pre-timed to switch off after office hours and operate on a two-hour timer for outside hours use
                                              • timers installed on photocopiers and hot water heaters to reduce after hours use of electricity
                                              • introduction of zone lighting controls in certain buildings.
                                              • Participation in Earth Hour

                                              (a) If yes, what % reduction is that from 2009; and
                                              (b) If no, why has a target not been set.

                                              Interim Green Fleet targets have been set for NTPS at 7% for 2009-10.
